Come on feel the noise...

While recording my last song I came to the realization that what had been sufficient for a pseudo-hobby was horribly insufficient for recording and programming at the level I want to be currently.

I've always used computers to cover up for my ineptitude as a musician, singer, and songwriter. Back in the day I'd simply rely on my brother to round out a song. I'd write the lyrics and melody along with a lousy guitar part and it pretty much ended there.

2011 is going to be the year of accomplishments. I've finally acquired a modern computer, and the appropriate digital tools to record at home. Save for a dedicated studio I'm good to go. Once Amazon makes the last few deliveries I'll get cracking on writing and recording. I've assured Jill that I will not vanish for the next few months.

I'll of course be writing songs for her as my way of asking forgiveness for spending money on stuff. Thankfully I'm cute because I'm not the best songwriter.
